Visiting across UHMBT hospitals is currently permitted in all areas except on wards that are declared in COVID-19 outbreak, however we still want to do everything we can to keep our patients connected with their loved ones.
To enable patients to keep that important contact with their family and friends, the Trust continues to keep a number of things in place:
- Teams across the Trust are encouraging patients to keep in touch via their smartphone or tablet if they are able to - using the Trust’s free WiFi
- A small supply of iPads is available in each hospital to allow patients to video call their family and friends
- Relatives and friends can share messages with loved ones in hospital by filling in the form below. The message is then delivered direct to the patient
